Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book guides parents, teachers, and professionals so students can achieve their full potential. Kids with labels such as ADHD, autism, or Asperger's may also be gifted in math, art, or music, and educators and parents must work to develop their abilities." Temple Grandin, Ph.D., world-renowned autism expert and author of The Autistic Brain and Thinking in Pictures "All kids are hard to diagnose, and gifted kids are the most likely to be misunderstood and misdiagnosed. It is very easy to give a psychiatric diagnosis, so very hard to erase one, and the mislabeling can stigmatize and haunt a child for life. Parents need to be well informed to protect their children from diagnostic exuberance and unneeded treatments." Allen Frances, M.D., Chair DSM IV Task Force; Former Chair, Duke Department of Psychiatry; Author: Saving Normal: An Insider's Revolt against DSM-V, Big Pharma, and the Medicalization of Ordinary Life. "A widespread and serious problem...the wasting of lives from the misdiagnosis of gifted children and adults and the inappropriate treatment that follows." Jack G. Wiggins, Ph.D., Former President, American Psychological Association "Should be required reading for every professional who cares for children and every parent with a bright, but behaviorally perplexing, child." Fernette R. Eide, M.D., Neurologist, and Brock L. Eide, M.D., General Practitioner, Eide Neurolearning Clinic
